We're looking for a dynamic and highly organised administrator to join our team to help us spread the word about our community and the opportunities we have for people to get involved, both paid and voluntary.

Each year we recruit and welcome up to 40 new people to our community as L'Arche Assistants - which is what we call Support Workers – to support our community members with learning disabilities. Some Assistants live alongside those with learning disabilities, others live locally and come to work in the community each day.

Some Assistants come because they want to experience living in an intentional community. Some come from a care background and are looking for a fresh outlook, whilst others are on a career break or gap year looking to do something different for a while.  All are committed to L'Arche's aims of building a community where everyone is valued and supported.

We're part of an international federation of L'Arche communities all around the world supporting people with learning disabilities, so some assistants come from overseas. Whilst our roots and ethos are Christian, we welcome people of all faiths and none.

We offer a broad range of volunteering opportunities - from befriending to DIY, from helping in our craft workshop to office admin - enabling a wide range of people from across London to be part of our community.

The HR and Communications Administrator is a new role for someone self-motivated, confident with social media, who enjoys writing copy. 

We’re looking for a focused and enthusiastic person who can help us get the word out about our unique community to our local area, the UK and the world. Is this you? Get in touch.
